Greetings pilots! Wow! July has been a crazy month and it
feels like there is a boat load to report on this month.
Squadron (Re)Mobilization 4 drew to a close on the 15th and
proved to be one of the most challenging yet with only two
squadrons achieving all 8 tasks. Congratulations go to
Lambda and Tempest squadrons and a well done to all you for
your efforts during the competition.
Sin, along with the other Warrior squadrons have reduced
back to 12 pilot squadrons after trialing 16. This has seen
a plethora of movement over the month. We’ve said farewell
to some old comrades but have also had the opportunity to
welcome new friends.
With ReMob4 done and dusted there’s a whole new host of
competitions for our pilots to get involved with including
several Sin and Warrior specific ones.
Find this and plenty more, in the news sections below.

The messages are simply random 3, 4, and 5 letter
combinations repeated for approximately 2 standard weeks
before the letter combinations change again. In an effort
to help figure out what the messages mean, Marenta has
tasked the Warrior to make up phrases for the letter
combinations and polling the fleet to determine which is
the most likely.

Sinners are descended from the Emperor himself. From the
time a Sinner could fly, they were baptized in the fire of
combat. Taught never to retreat, never to surrender.
Taught that death on the battlefield in service to the
Empire was the greatest glory they could achieve."
